The many faces of....(beta)
Ok, there is this game that I made up and trying to test out for web forum play. I would appreciate all of yours help with it. It might need tweaking and I just want to see if its:

1. Easy enough to play
2. Actually interesting to play.

It's fairly simple. You pick an actor, any actor, then go through their movies and pick out few roles they played. The next person has to guess who it is, just by looking at the roles they played. No elaborate descriptions of what they done in the movie, but you can use more than one word to describe them.
Don't put it in chronological order either, because that would be easy.

Ill start with a fairly simple one.

This person played:

a cop
a robot
a witness protection specialist
a dad
secret agent
a robot
a robot
a mad scientist
a bar patron

PS: if you have suggestions on the game, please add yours. This game is in the process of being tweaked, tested and perfected.

simple?? :eek:

Capella 07-10-2007 10:08 AM

Hmm. maybe adding a little more descriptions would help.
Let me try to redo this one.

a cop, surrounded by
a killer robot from the future
a witness protection specialist
a desperate father in search of a perfect toy
secret agent posing as a regular person with a boring job
a robot
a robot
a mad scientist in a funky suit
a bar patron who just walks by...but walks by very memorably.

Yep..do you know how hard it was not to post "In nearly every movie ever made" ? :p

who does the movie list..has this been decided?

Capella 07-10-2007 04:14 PM

I think that's up for grabs,but I think the person who guesses the actor can name the movies, because it would be interesting to know.

No, sorry, wrong answer.

trisherina 07-10-2007 06:03 PM

I knew it was too good to be true!

funkytuba 07-10-2007 07:39 PM

could it be:

zenbabe 07-10-2007 08:25 PM

I think it is Sly

and if it is, you forgot porn star!

funkytuba 07-10-2007 08:37 PM

suggestion for the rules: if the same basic role is going to be in the list many multiple times, you ought to have to give at least one adjective:

so instead of:
a cop
a cop
a cop
a cop
a cop

you should be required to say:
a vengeful cop
a distraught cop
a funny cop
a disaffected cop
a rogue cop

Capella 07-11-2007 09:19 AM

Funkytuba - good idea!

Zenbabe - wins again!

zenbabe 07-11-2007 12:46 PM

- a clown
- a woman
- a man in a coma
- a guy that like to take pictures
- a kid in a grown mans body
- a gay man
